The hackers from Microsoft broke in. Paul Wheaton, the owner of this site, reportedly is suing for $10 billion in damages.

$10 billion? That seems a might bit excessive, don't you? When I logged in and saw that javaranch had been hacked, and then viewed the image of the altered moose, I nearly had a heart attack laughing so hard. I apologize, I know it's a malevolent act, but for some reason, I couldn't help but laugh.

Bill Gates contacted Paul Wheaton to discuss the incident. Reportedely, they might settle out of court for half of the original amount.
